Posted by bethg on

In the event of inclement weather, the Grafton Public Library may close to ensure safety for Library staff and visitors. In the event of a Library closing, all fines and fees for materials due on the unscheduled closed date will be waived. If the Grafton Public Schools are closed, but the Library remains open, all scheduled Library programs will be canceled. The Library encourages our members to consider their own safety first and foremost, and follow all government issued travel advisories and bans.
